Graeme Gibson's miscellany is 'devoted to alpha predators and their prey' and explores the complex connection between the hunter and the hunted that has defined animal life on earth throughout history. Works of art and literature from all eras and all cultures - from prehistoric rock art to paintings by Audubon, Hesiod's Theogony to Murakami - are arranged in eight chapters on themes such as animal spirits, folktales and parables, the fatal encounter, killing without eating and our own connection with nature.
